2017 - Documentary (1h33) from Stéphane Mercurio
A long sentence, how does it tell? It is strange that word means punishment and sorrow at the same time. Thus Didier Ruiz expresses himself when he undertakes the staging of his last show mounted with former prisoners of long sorrow. In the suspended time of rehearsals we see all these men transform themselves - the director including. The film tells the prison, the way she engraves in the flesh indelible marks and invisible. He captures the rigorous work of a director with these "extraordinary" actors. And above all he tells a journey, one that will allow this inconceivable word to spring from the shadows to cross the walls.
